here's how I do it.
1. Get the design into jef or sew format (the only kinds janome reads). You probably already knew this, but some newbies try to use pes or art files.
2. Save it onto your computer (and remember the name of the file). I have a folder in my computer labelled "embroidery files" and then have subfolders dividing up those designs - such as animals, flowers, fonts.
3. Hook your sewing machine up to the computer via the USB cable.
4. Pull up your Janome "Easy Transfer" program (it came as a CD with your machine - this is NOT the customizing software).
5. Use that program to find your embroidery file. It's not going to show sew and jef in the same file - you'll have to switch back and forth.
6. On your sewing machine, click on the bottom button (under the screen) that shows the computer to the sewing machine (the third one).
7. Now click on the computer software "write to machine" or whatever it's called (it will be on the top tool bar).
8. Your file will be written to the sewing machine's memory and organized by the embroidery hoop size (A, B, C).
9. It will stay in the sewing machine memory until you use the cable hookup to delete it (reverse of the writing).
10. The 10001 software ate lots of the resident memory in the sewing machine - you can't store as many designs in it as the 10000 would allow. That's perfectly ok, as it only takes a few moments to move designs in and out of the machine.
To be perfectly honest, I vastly prefer doing the USB cable transfer to using the memory card jammed into the card reader deal. It's easy and quick.

I was having the exact same problem and just a minute ago was able to fix this. If you have the original installation cd for customizer 10000 plus when you first connect your usb cable from the machine to your xp machine choose the option to install the new hardware yourself. Then point to the cd rom drive and the drivers folder, win 2000 and the file inside of that will be the driver file. As soon as you install from this file it will be successful and you will be able to see all your Janome 10001 machine files on your computer when you work with customizer 10000 plus software. Let me know how it goes.

Hi - I think you have a Viking Designer 1, which has a slot for a floppy disk on the side of the machine. If so, you need to purchase embroidery software that supports file type .sv1, and you will need to buy floppy disks.
You can buy embroidery software from Viking that will allow you to write design files onto floppy disks, but you can find other embroidery software packages that support the D1 which cost quite a bit less - make sure that file type .sv1 is supported before you buy.
Viking does sell designs that come on a D1 floppy disk. You can just pop the floppy into the machine, select you design, and go. You can find Viking designs online from time to time, but before you buy, ask if a floppy is included - the newer Viking design packages come with a DVD but might not include the floppy for the D1.
Hope this helps, Ginny
If you have a Viking #1+, you won't be able to use floppy disks with your machine. Please repost and I'll tell you what to look for.
